What The Bible Says
Good Samaritan's Penny Pulpit by Pastor Ed Rice
By definition “corona” are visible circles of light around a luminous object, a crown of light, an aureola or white halo around our sun only visible during a total eclipse. We do have an eclipsed Son, but actually its crown shape gives this novo (unknown) or novel (original and not seen before) corona virus its name. The acronym COVID-19 is CO, corona, VI, virus, D, disease, and 19 short for 2019 when it appeared.
Is the novo corona-virus the wrath of God? Is it the end of the world? Is it a precursor to the second coming of Christ? No, No and No. When the vials of the wrath of God are poured upon this earth they will be final, unmistakable, and clearly foretold in Revelation chapter sixteen. That chapter foretells what one would call “the end of the world”, verse eleven tells man's reaction, and we are not there yet. There are seven precursors to the second coming of Christ; they occur after the rapture of the Church and are foretold in the pealing of seals off “the book” described in the Revelation of Jesus Christ chapter six. We are not there yet.
COVID-19 could be construed as a chastisement of God, “For whom the lord loveth he chasteneth...” (Heb 12:6). God does not per se “send” judgment, but he does take back his hand and allow such vexation into loved lives. Corona-virus is most likely Satan's power play. The feminist movement he started in Eden invaded and ruined homes and churches, and now Satan wants society ushered into a one-world government. That global warming hoax and Paris accord was just not working out for him. Death and destruction are his normal tools. The world cannot see all this, but Christians can. Pray President Trump can trump Satan again.
